I am currently listening to the Dead show from 4/29 and must say I am heartily impressed with the Doin' that Rag

thank you for pointing this out, I haven't listened to ANY of these shows for fear of just being disgusted. I am pretty impressed with this though. Much better than I thought.

OK, I have to admit that the jam after Lady with a Fan is pretty happening. Coolest thing I’ve heard all tour. Plus Phil’s vocal samples- has that been done on this tour? Hadn’t noticed if it has. e

I'm actually listening to that song at this very moment. This show is better than the previous night. The Fire from the 28th gave me narcolepsy. Really the whole second set was torpid and faint. I'm impressed with the variety of songs being played but some of these shows are really lacking energy. Bobby seems determined to keep the tempos down and his sing a line-skip a line thing is really starting to bug me. He's even doing it on Estimated now.

I'm still quite excited about next week's Denver show but I have a feeling it’s not going to be a barn-burner. e

i listen to that first night and was enjoying the scarelt and start of fire but then it seemed like someone pulled the plug. the birdsong just meandered and got embarassing. that said, i've heard some good moments from this tour. the gimme shelter, while ragged, would have been fun to hear whereas the unbroken chain (same show?) was pretty damn bad. oh well. have fun - beats beer, the old lady and tv.

BTW... Beer, TV and my old lady? Have you been to my home or what?!?! Good call. :)

looking at you, looking at me

i like to say, much to my wife's joy, that i've gone from wine, women and song to beer, the old lady and tv.

Thanks, I'm sure it will be a good time just being there with everyone. I'm going alone as my wife's out of town. I'm actually looking forward to flying solo and seeing where the winds take me.

I know that it's useless to compare this version of The Dead to The Grateful Dead but I’m still surprised by the pedestrian approach to these songs. We hit Phil & Friends (with Jackie Greene) in Sept 07 (Red Rocks) and it was massive, cerebral and compelling (on disk as well). Only a year and a half ago but night and day compared to the energy of these shows. e
